Nominated by her friend Carolyn
Hi there and thanks so much for the opportunity to nominate my Cancer Kickin’ friend Krysten!
Krysten was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in the Summer of 2017 while she was two months pregnant with her third son. Devastated but determined to fight, she went through chemotherapy while pregnant, and baby Dean was born healthy and beautiful.
Then, in June 2019, the unthinkable happened – Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. Now a mom of three boys under the age of 4, she is in full warrior-mode for the fight of her life.
There aren’t enough words to describe how AWESOME Krysten is. She simply rocks. I think it’s fair to say that Krysten exemplifies the word “Yeehaw” in that she celebrates every day and continues to rock on despite the challenges of MBC. She isn’t going anywhere and she’ll let you know it with her gigantic beautiful smile. She exemplifies “Namaste” with her calmness, regular yoga practice and incredibly positive attitude. Yoga is part of her regimen in beating MBC and she LOVES it. She loves horses and riding, although it’s hard to get the chance to do ride with three little ones running around!
Krysten is fighting for her life but you can rest assured, she isn’t sitting around complaining about it. Instead, she is “Making the Breast of It” with her latest creation – a podcast about living and thriving with MBC. Launched on September 29th, it already has @ 3,000 followers!
